Digital CorNeR project kicks off thanks to funding from MISE
5G technology to immersively and interactively experience events remotely
MISTER, CNR, Proambiente, Music Academy and Luciano Pavarotti Foundation partners are awarded co-funding from the Ministry of Economic Development (5G audiovisual project) to implement the Digital CorNeR project.
The project activities will focus on the realization of immersive content that, exploiting the high performance of 5G networks in terms of bandwidth and latency, will be tested through use cases during musical, educational, tourist-recreational events.
To achieve the goal, the CNR Conference Center in Bologna will be upgraded, with the creation of a control room that, interacting through 5G technology, will allow the production of usable content with emerging human-machine interfaces (e.g., augmented, virtual, immersive and interactive reality, voice recognition, etc.).
This infrastructure will be complemented by two dedicated laboratories:
- SED Space – Digital Event Room, will aim to develop experimental, immersive content based on augmented, virtual, immersive and interactive reality;
- 5G-TUR Lab, will aim to test the full usability and interactivity of augmented and virtual reality content, particularly aimed at the tourism-recreation sector.
The invaluable collaboration of the partners Music Academy and Fondazione Luciano Pavarotti will allow the realization of two use cases, which will be an opportunity to test the implemented technologies.
Music Academy will provide the Creative Hub (a new center for training, innovation and promotion in music, art and entertainment) for the realization of a musical event that, thanks to 5G, will be possible to enjoy in immersive mode also at the SED Space.
The Luciano Pavarotti Foundation’s partnership will allow for the 360° streaming of one of the events planned during the third edition of the annual “Musica Maestro!” festival, which will be held at the park of the Luciano Pavarotti House Museum and will be replayed through the new technologies of the SED Space.
This project is part of the broader goal of creating a unique infrastructure in Emilia-Romagna open to the territory and the community, useful for the exchange and sharing of ideas, technologies and opportunities.
